These are the hosts of this year’s Croatian semi-finals!
Once an island, Primošten has preserved the atmosphere and all the architectural features of a medieval Mediterranean fishing village. Naturally sheltered from the winds, surrounded by vineyards woven into a stone honeycomb, at the foot of the hills there is Kremik marina which is unique on the Adriatic. The view of the Babić vines in their stone cells on the nearby slopes is a special experience and testimony to how man’s hand can enrich and fertilize even the harshest landscape. On the Raduča peninsula, to the north of the town, in a pine forest, there are hotels and beaches with a wide range of facilities.
Okrug on the island of Čiovo, or to be precise two Okrugs – Upper and Lower are connected to Trogir via a moving drawbridge. The beautiful sandy beaches are ideal for families with children, and the hidden coves are a paradise for tourists looking for peace. There is a wide selection of restaurants in the village, and during the hot summer days the a’cappella groups and fishermen’s parties amuse the visitors. The numerous cultural (Trogir, Split, etc.) and sporting activities (scuba diving, paragliding, fitness centre, tennis courts…) make Okrug a pleasant place for your holiday.
Vranjic is the name of peninsula and small resort on it, located north of Split peninsula and near the mouth of the river Jadro. Because of its beauty and direct contact with the sea, Vranjic is sometimes called “Little Venice”. What is less known, it’s the place where cult Croatian TV series “Naše malo misto” was filmed, depicting life in a small Dalmatian town through the chronicles of local residents. In short, it’s one of the best and most popular works of Croatian cinematography. Besides having rich history, Vranjic will conquer your heart with good food and great people. We just love to come back every year!
The island of Vir is one of the 300 islands in the Zadar archipelago, that is, one of 1186 islands and islets in the Croatian Adriatic. Vir is part of the genuine Mediterranean climate. Number of sunny hours per year is 2450, or almost 300 days of sunshine, that makes it a pleasant destination out of the main season also. Along the coast of Vir there are pebbly and sandy beaches partly situated near pine trees and surrounded by crystal clear sea waters, making this island a perfect place for a family holiday. Very special place holds a small island of Školjić, covered in pine trees and long sandy beach that is its particularity. Školjić is situated near the bridge that connects the island of Vir to the mainland. Besides swimming, surfing, sailing, jet skiing and other water sports, hiking enthusiasts can admire the beautiful panorama that encompasses entire Vir, nearby islands and Velebit mountain (1750 m), from the top of Bandira vantage point (112m). We recommend this area to those who enjoy mountain-biking. Very interesting is also the peloid mud that is used for the treatment of rheumatic diseases, and can be found at some Vir beaches, especially ones near the bay of Sapavac, close to the Venetian fortress – Kaštelina.
